My second home
GizV8

Yes there is a padlock on the door as well as a nice noisey alarm. :)
I was going to build a new shed twice the size of this one but that would mean more space, then I'd need more things to fill it then I would have less money than I have now! :) ooo the tamiya vicious circle.

Opps!!! sorry sweet heart have no idea how i got it
childish

I would mind one of these myself...a good lookin' truck.
On hard bodies I've always used Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner. Spray it on, leave for around 40-50mins then rub with pan scourer and rinse in water. It also gets rid of the chrome on bumpers and grill etc.
Good look with it!

My son's first attempt at spraying!
GizV8

I sprayed all my bodies in my shed and so far nothing has exploded so I knew we'd be ok! ;)
If he gets into it properly I'm getting him a proper mask. You're right scollins, paint fumes are awfull. We had to do a bit then go outside.
Thanks for the comments guys.

Hahaha. Yes Wayne, thats exactly what I did...thank you!
Sometimes I get a bit eager...which is a good thing! Other times it cost £12 plus p+p!!!! :)

Hahahaha gaz can't drive
jeffy

Its not the driver thats rubbish, the hills were all at the wrong angle! ;)
There's nothing finer though than watching something you built and painted destroy itself in several long slow rolls down a hill......that was the wrong angle!!! :)

Models...my other hobby!
GizV8

Thanks for your comments. I've given up collecting the 1/18 metal cars now. I stick to plastic kits 1/24 or smaller. There is actually a 1/64 Racing Champions Smokey and the Bandit car just infront of the knight Rider car. :)

Models...my other hobby!
GizV8

You need to look a little harder Victorious Secret...the Dukes car is just behind the Knight Rider car. I do have a 1/18 General Lee but my son claimed that for his bedroom!! The blue and white police car, Crash Cramer, is just there to go along side the bluesmobile...it has a similar livery to the Chicago PD cars in the film...but I don't know if you've noticed from the pics...I have a thing for police cars and especially Dodge Monaco's! And yes i should dust 'em more ofter but I sit below the shelves so I don't really see the top side. My wife also refuses to dust 'em just incase one breaks...which did once happen!!! :)

I don't have two buggy champs, or even one, but . . .
Chicago Bob

I agree Chicago Bob, your pic are far more interesting than the endless Buggy Champ Boxes.
It happens every time a new kit is released though...pic 1, Cardboard box, pic 2, cardboard box slightly open, pic 3 cardboard box slightly more open...fast forward to pic 10..(cos most people by this time are loosing the will to live)....new model box sat slightly in front of cardboard box in pic 1. YAAAAAWWWNN.
Nice to know theres at least one other person that gets fed up of seeing NIB models.

Boring box
jeffy

WOW!!, I think you have a 'rare', 'hard to find', 'not many of these about', 'collectors item' on your hands there Wayne..........The witing and stickers are upside-down!!!
Quick get it up for 'sale or trade' and if you don't get any offers....threaten to put it on eBay...that'll show 'em!!!

Boring box
jeffy

p.s. Can you post some pics of the box slighlty open when you have time???
BUT can you do it differently?? Only open the edges of the box to 17.5 degrees. I have checked the other 18,678 Buggy Champs on TC and no one has had the box opened at that angle.
cheers dooood!

Very nice Chris, I love it. I was that impressed I shouted my missis to have a look and she said 'cool, a boat with wheels'. Women just don't get it do they? :)
